  1. Account management with multiple emails


    Hello,

    When I attempt to visit Xbox / MS Insider / etc. their site always automatically assumes I want to log in using my hotmail account. If I sign out and use the correct account (Gmail), everything is good, but then Microsoft logs me out across the board causing
    me to need to log in all over again once done visiting xbox.

    Is there any way to simply log in to Xbox / Insider / etc. with the correct account and turn off SSO so it stops killing my hotmail stuff?

    It is beyond frustrating having to log out of my hotmail account, then visit xbox and log in using the correct account. When done, log out, go back to hotmail and log back in because MS attempts to tie my Xbox stuff to Hotmail automatically. Where is the
    OFF button?

    Like so frustrating to the point of never playing xbox again on PC.

    :)

    Thank you for the replies.

    IE seems to have issues when logging in to MS sites oddly enough and because each site calls the same login page in the background, I can not separate the accounts.

    If I want to play xbox, looks like I will need to either jump through hoops on PC, or just use the console. It is not that it doesn't work, it is just a pita to get working however maybe that is my fault for using a gmail account on a MS service.

    I am going to try Firefox for xbox related stuff (currently use chrome for everything else) and see if I can get a better experience.

    Again, thanks for the latest replies, very helpful. Take care!

    As far as I can see, you'll have to continue that. Unless there is a feature for remembering a certain email.

    There are a couple of options. You can remove the automatic login information (password save) from the browser you are using. Then you will have to log in each time you go to that particular browser, regardless of the account you want to use.

    Or, a simpler option, and what I do often with the Office 365 company account, I use a different browser to sign in on when it is not my personal account, and I don't save the password/sign in information.

    Works well and I just have to remember to launch a specific browser depending on the account I'm using.

    Account management is pretty easy actually. What complicates things is when users begin to use seperate email address for multiple services offered by one entity, and then try to switch everything to one email address.
